Couple of days ago, I was charging my iphone. I came back to it couple of hours later and it stopped charging. I picked it up, and it was HOT, not warm, but HOT to the point where it was too hot to handle.
Have also tried 2 different chargers, apple power adapter charger and also just the USB Cord plugging directly into my laptop.

Just scared of it happening again and end up blowing up or something.

Any ideas of what's gone wrong?

Since upgrading mine to 3.1.2 I noticed mine heats up a lot more during charge.

Plus burns through battery a hell of a lot faster!




 


The force is strong with this one!

Mine only gets hot when using GPS for prolonged time, or using a processer intensive app like a game... If it got hot while charging i would take it back. Warm while charging would be normal, not hot.

I contacted Magnum Mac (store I bought this from) and they advised to call Apple directly as customer service rep advised he has never come acrossed this, and then contact Mobile Fone Repair for repairs.

having 3G enabled, Wifi, Bluetooth, location (gps) & data all contribute to power drain which in turn = heat. Although its a pain I try and charge with the device powered down, doesnt take as long to charge and doesnt get as hot. As with the 1st line here, I have had all these on at once and I drained the battery in 5 hours without listening to music or any phone calls ( standby mode only )

Bought this iphone in November and this is the first time it has overheated to the point where it is extremely hot. Might give Apple a call and see what they say.

just to add: my phone didn't charge fully, it stopped charging at 52% and no longer had the charging icon, but was still connected on charge.
